There's a story here: I booked 2 nights at the Seeboomook Wilderness Campground and since we were traveling via motorcycle, I took the precaution of calling a few folks in the area to check the condition of the roads. "Rough and dusty, dusty and rough" was the given description. We're resilient and up for adventure, so off we went. The campground was awesome and our plans included supper here at Pittston Farm. We woke up to rain, which turned the dusty roads to slime. The 12 mile drive from the campground to the Farm took us an hour and 10 mins, white knuckle all the way. Once arriving at the Farm, we decided we would try to catch a ride back to the campground, leaving the motorcycles at the Farm. As we discussed this plan, Guy ( one of the owners) heard our conversation and chimed in," have you seen the weather report? Gonna rain the next two days, and you should really get back out to the hard road ( 20 more miles away) tonight!". All our gear was at the lake, what to do? Guy offered to take us back, help us pack up our gear and get us headed out before the rain really set in. We were even able to get supper to go! So a big big THANK YOU to Guy and Jen. We managed the hard road before it was too dark and too rainy. We would love to go back again someday....
